SCOUTS - Be Prepared


This badge is designed for those who take part regularly in an activity for which there is no other Scout Activity Badge.

The Scout must do either A or B. The Scout can gain more than one Hobbies Badge.

Alternative A

  1. Be actively involved with a hobby or interest of their choice, not covered by other Activity Badges.
  2. Keep a record of their involvement over a period of time agreed between themselves and the assessor.
Alternative B
  1. Make a collection or study of objects over a period of time agreed with the assessor, for example, stamps, metal badges, teaspoons or bookmarks.
  2. Talk to the assessor about the subject they have chosen, and the reason for their choice.
For Scouts whose needs are not dealt with in the above, alternative requirements may be adopted as agreed between themselves and the leadership team.
